    Need Help?

    xYour pension book (nenkin techo) is the small orange or blue booklet you'll have received from your employer or contracting organisation when you first arrived to work in Japan. Your employer may have held on to the booklet for you during your employment and should have given it to you when you left. We can contact your employer if you don't have it.
